Blancpain fires its first arrow at Valentine’s Day


Christmas may be just around the corner, but Blancpain’s thoughts have already turned to Valentine’s Day and the Swatch Group brand has produced a timepiece certain to get female hearts fluttering.

The £10,930 Blancpain Saint Valentin, available exclusively from Blancpain’s Bond Street boutique, is a 29mm steel watch with a mother-of-pearl watch face surrounded by a bezel set with 68 diamonds. A cluster of 19 rubies in the shape of a heart is the focal point of the dial at 12 o’clock and its seconds hand is a red arrow that might have been  fired by Cupid himself.


On the back of the watch, a sapphire crystal reveals an open-worked white gold oscillating weight marked with the Côtes de Genève that winds the newly developed Caliber 913 automatic movement.

The Saint-Valentin, limited to 99 numbered pieces, is sold with two interchangeable alligator leather straps.
